In the Future a Computer will Love You Back, says Google Engineer

Ray Kurzweil, Google’s engineering director and one of the world’s best futurists, capable of extremely accurate predictions, speculated that we’ll be able to fall in love with computers in foreseeable time.

 

“My timeline is that computers will be at human level, such that you can have a relationship with them, in 15 years from now – 2029,” said Kurzweil.

An immediate reference is the recent human-AI romance flick, Her. According to Kurzweil, the movie is a pretty accurate depiction of what we can expect from romantic relations with robots in the future.

 

Emotional interaction with nonhuman intelligence is nothing new: before Her, several films played with the idea, such as Bicentennial Man, which starred Robin Williams. However, for those who’ve seen Her to the end, the prospect of computer-human love may not be so enticing.

Still, if Kurzweil’s previous predictions are anything to go by, we’ll be able to test his hypothesis in the near future. In 1990, after he predicted that a computer will beat a human in chess by 1998, Deep Blue famously bested Gary Kasparov in 1997.  

All of this goes toward Kurzweil’s idea of “singularity” – the point where humans and machines indistinguishably converge.
